When you smelt fuel, It was flooded. Your best bet would be to replace the spark plugs. Gas will foul them out, just like oil.

SOURCE: Hi,I have a 91 honda

this was a problem with my 91 accord as well. it would irritate me to no end because one minute she would start and the next she wouldnt....i did notice that she would have a lot more trouble starting if it was a hot day or if i left her out in the sun for long periods. anyeays, the mechanics at the shop said this was a common problem with this model car due to a malfunctioning chip that does not tolerate heat very well..... luckily they were right and i was in and out of the shop in no time.

There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.

Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.

And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.

Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.

Your gas cap on tightly?

Good luck with your problem.

My car ran out of gas, now it will not start


If high miles, it may be a fuel pump. Fuel pumps usually go when gasoline is low and pump gets too warm. This may mimic running out of gas when there is a gallon or two of gas still left to draw but needle reads empty. Have someone put their ear to the gas tank while you turn on the ignition switch. the pump should run for 2-10 seconds with key on and not cranking.

If you don't hear the pump run, then investigate further for a failed pump.

I have to turn my car on several times in order for it to start


The gas pedal has no effect on starting a fuel injected car

You should just have to turn the key to start,we're not
in the days of a carburetor where you pump the gas

You obviously did not have three very though test results,
from where ever you went.

A repair shop or dealer either puts in the time to find
an issue or they don't,they didn't. Did you pay for several
hours of time to find the issue or what? Three places?

I would start fresh, find & resolve,do you not have a shop
you have used for decades?

You could have a worn ignition switch
A worn TPS Sensor
A bad Fuel Pump
Clogged Gas filter
Worn Spark Plugs

Make the list as long as need be, as I
have no idea what has been done over
the years to your vehicle

I do know a 6,7 year old vehicle should not have
a problem as you explaining

What was the fuel pressure & volumn?
Was it even checked?

You need to be part of the solution & write
thing down.

If you dive a vehicle for years & are not proactive
at least 2 or 3 time a year,then you have a break down
situation

You can't include a worn or failed fuel pump if that turns
out to be the case

I have a 2004 Land cruiser and changed the right rear brake cyl and brake shoes . What is the proper procedure to bleed the rear brake system. Thank you for your help.


  1. Check the fluid level in the reservoir after bleeding each wheel. Add DOT3 fluid, if necessary.
  2. If the master cylinder was disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder as follows:
    1. Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder.
    2. Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.
    3. Block off the outlet plug with your finger, and release the brake pedal.
    4. Repeat 3 or 4 times.

  3. Bleed the brake starting with the one furthest from the reservoir and then the next furthest, etc.
  4. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
  5. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug to 11 Nm (8 ft. lbs.), then release the brake pedal.
  6. Repeat until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
  7. Repeat the procedure to bleed the air out of brake line for each wheel.
  8. Check the fluid level and add DOT3 fluid if necessary.

My car turns over good, acts like it might turn on then continues to turn. I figure it might be fuel filter since low fuel light had come on.Or could it be th fuel pump got hot and is not working properly?


common problem is turning car off with engine not reaching normal operating temp and floods engine. try this. DE-CHOKING PROCEDURE WHEN ENGINE CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START
If the engine does not start, try the following procedure to start the engine using the de-choke mode.
Failure to do so may aggravate the no start condition.
1. Depress and hold the accelerator pedal to the floor and crank the engine for 7-8 seconds. (This will clean out any unburned fuel from the combustion chamber)
2. Release the ignition key to stop cranking.
3. Release the accelerator pedal and start the engine. If the engine starts while performing Step 1 the engine will rev up. Immediately release the ignition key to stop cranking and remove your foot from the accelerator pedal.
^ Do not keep holding the ignition switch in the START position over 10 seconds if the engine does not start. This may result in a weakened or dead battery.
^ Avoid racing the engine or sudden take off right after starting the engine.
^ If the engine still fails to start following the De-choking procedure, have your vehicle inspected by your Mazda Dealer.

for your info there is a recall for this problem. contact mazda.

Driving 60mph power drops as though out of gas. Coast 2-300 yds pump gas pedal van back to normal. Now at home it starts then stalls, will only run 5-10 seconds. New plugs&wires distributor cap and...


signs of a bad fuel pressure regulator. the vehicle runs rough, the engine will not start usually in the mornings. many times engine starts but stalls shortly after starting. a bad regulator can result in fouled plugs. black soot on plugs, blake smoke from tailpipe, running rough, stalling. you could have residue in fuel tank and need to change fuel filter again. have a very good day !!

Car ran out of gas, now cannot get started


After you've added fuel to the car it may be necessary to prime the system. Do this by turning the key to the on position (not start), wait for 5 seconds, the turn the key off. Do this 3 times, as long as there are no other issues it will start right up.
** You should hear a faint humming sound indicating the fuel pump is working

Engine shuts down anytime gas pedal is floored corvette is a 1982 crossfire.if you ease up on pedal engine then gains rpm as normal.idle is fine .seems as if when vacuum drops that is what causes it to...


Possible causes, and in an order of where to check first:

1.Fuel filter - Located along the Right frame rail, close to passenger door area.

2.Fuel pump - Located inside fuel tank.
[Electric fuel pump. Pressure should read between 9-13 PSI.
The Cross-Fire Injection unit, is in reality,
Two- Throttle Body Injection units. TBI. ]

3.Fuel strainer for fuel pump. ('Fuel sock')
Located in fuel tank, attached to fuel pump.
The fine mesh of this sock can become restricted over time, by 'sludge' that has built up in the bottom of the fuel tank.
(
'Sludge'. Dirt mixed with moisture that builds up inside a fuel tank. Additives for gasoline that also add to the sludge)

4.Air cleaner element. (Added, because many times this is overlooked by the owner, and can cause bogging down when accelerating hard, if severely dirty. Added as fourth in the list instead of First, but may be the First area to look)

5..Cross-Fire Injection System, (Twin Throttle Body Injection System)
This injection system is controlled by an ECM, (Engine Control Module)
This same ECM also controls the emissions system. (CCC. Close Coupled Catalysts)

It is for this reason, of interaction of the injection, emissions, and ignition systems, that only a qualified, professional technician can diagnose problems with the unit.

Computerized diagnostic equipment, along with the knowledge, and training required, is needed.

Hard to start any time of the day for 1994 Nissan Quest XE.


turn your key on, DO NOT TOUCH THE GAS PEDAL and start, good luck. Pumping the pedal doesn't do a thing for fuel injection. In thre days of carburetors and you had control of your own property, Pumping did a couple of things. It set the choke and added more fuel. But that was yesterday and yesterday's gone.

Just changed broken fuel line on 99 f350 7.3l and wont start now


You can try this, turn on ignition, you should hear a whirrling noise from the fuel pump, if you hear it, turn ignition off, wait a few seconds, turn it back on, do this 3 to 4 times, so the fuel pump can build up some pressure, then hold the pedal down about half way while your cranking the engine. If there isn't anything else wrong, it should start.
